    The double-tap for confirmation system is something I believe no game should have, and what seems to be a deliberately obscure menu system (and the fact you have to register to access the game's main features), is a bit iffy, but once you start playing the game proper, you certainly find it hard to stop. Remember, it's 100% or nothing.

    Don't get me wrong it is a well made game, but for me all the elements don't quite gel together for a great game.

    It also has a colourful, clean look. Animation is good and the frogs themselves are undeniably cute and crazy-looking. The art during the cut scenes is also well-penned and the sound is cool too with jaunty, nicely-produced music.

    The only difference between ep4 and all it's predecessors is the story and locations, all the existing problems and the existing greatness follow over into this episode, so I am sure you can probably already guess what I'll be scoring this episode ...again.

    A great entry in the physics puzzle genre bringing fresh level design challenging to both newbies, and the hardcore fans of the genre. There are better games out there in the physics puzzle genre with the now mandatory level editor, and peer sharing of levels such as Casey´s Contraptions. What sets Furmins apart is the excellent graphics, and challenging level design.

    Ethereally moving around the classic scenery can be a great way to spend a couple of hours. I rather solve the puzzles, and if I hadn't already played the original I would have a much harder time than I have.

    Controls are simple and effective. A two-way control pad for movement and two large buttons for jumping and sliding under low platforms. They're responsive and work well without getting in the way.

    I hope we'll see more of Pigeon Squadron, as I feel there is nice little IP here which could break into other gameplay types and genres.

    But it's a shame that the game doesn't realise how ridiculous it is. Visually it's so over the top that you're waiting for some humour; an in-joke or two, or some sort of nod and wink that it knows exactly what it's doing. But it never comes, with everything instead being played completely on the nose.

    Inbetween Land is no revolution to the genre, but rather showcases a strong mix of hidden object gameplay, puzzles and adventure.It does lack the fun story found in more refined hidden object games from the G5 library.

    There are some slight control issues, and perspective difficulties. If you stick to it you will soon find the same kind of find 'em all mindset that for example Lego Harry Potter induces.

    It has a cool 16-bit look and feel to it that reminds me of the game Flashback, and the various deaths are funny to behold. Because of the basic graphical design I would have liked to see more levels than the initial three (more levels are promised).

    Girls Like Robots is a quirky seating arrangement, or rather relationship simulator set in a high school love drama. It is perhaps the most serious game to be published by adult swim. It does however have a sense of humour, and despite not having anything fart or die horribly it is a fun game. There aren't many games on the App Store with this kind of gameplay, and as such it certainly fills a gap between Joining Hands and Triple Town.

    Pixel Pig is a nice casual game that works well for both the five minute break, and the two hour train ride. It lacks slightly in presentation, and music but makes up for it in playability.

    Also a good thing is that screeching to a halt just before the last flag to successfully complete a stunt – especially one of the trickier ones – is actually quite satisfying. It's pretty much all you could ask for in a game like this which probably has hundreds of relatives in the AppStore. Go then, strap on your helmet, rev your engine, and try not to fall into a canyon. Katie Cowpusher wouldn't be happy with that.

    So, for those looking for crazy racing fun, look no further than Hot Pursuit. But, for those of you who do like their racing games on the more realistic side of the road, then you still can't beat Real Racing 2 and it's great online multiplayer.

    In the end, the game is definitely fun but however it's presented, it can't hide the fact that in essence it's just another Angry Birds clone.

    In the end, this is a really good game. There are plenty of achievements and unlockable items to keep you busy for a long time. The visuals are good, but not as great as you would hope from this type of game. The only other problem is that this game will only appeal to a certain niche of gamers. The style of game is cool, but it does feel dated and antiquated in the modern area.

    The poor technical implementation aside, I still think Lunar is a great game. This just doesn't like the way it was originally intended to play.

    The soundtrack is also pretty cool and epic sounding. A little cut-and-paste with the production, but nice to listen to.

    Tiki Towers 2 is both fun and frustrating at the same time.

    FiveADay didn't grab me the same way that earlier Llamasoft games have, and somehow the subject matter feels more corny than wacky. Still it is a Llamasoft game, and as such has a high level of appeal to me both as a gamer and as a person with interest in game design. And I can't help but laugh at the messages between levels, as those are hilarious and changes depending on your performance.

    Downloadable currencies and content aside, the base game of Kingdom Rush Frontiers is an enjoyable one, and it comes highly recommended to existing fans of the genre.

    Although there isn't really a storyline to follow, and all you do is fly around and kill aircraft all the time, it is definitely on of those kinds of simple games that you can just pick up and play in case you need some time to kill.

    There's also a cool multiplayer mode which sees you go up against three other players in an attempt to see who can crash first…excuse me, stay in the air the longest. It's an enjoyable extra.

    So it's not perfect, but it is immaculately presented as well as self-aware.

    ‘Lonely Ship’ is a charming little game with seemingly hidden depths.

    Super Hexagon is tough, and that is clearly its defining feature. If you aren't up for a game that will frustrate you, stay away. High score chasers will feel right at home, if not outright delighted with what this simple but infuriating title has to offer.

    Snappy Dragons 2 is quite fun, and easy to get into and play. The lack of polish, and memorable presentation makes it kind of feel a bit washed out. Given that it is a sequel I expected more than this. The good thing is that you do get hours of fun gameplay at a buck.

    Yes, I do hate inconsistent framerates, but the original gameplay still shines though.
